Sarah Haddon practices in the firm’s Complex Litigation, Pharmaceutical Products, and Toxic Torts & Products Liability groups, and was a member of the firm’s 2021 Summer Associate Class. Sarah’s undergraduate interest in criminal psychology began her interest in becoming a lawyer. Her previous experiences, including as the Captain of the Women’s Varsity Basketball Team, allow her to bring determination, ambitiousness, and unwavering work ethic to the practice of law.
Sarah earned her J.D., summa cum laude, Order of the Coif, from American University Washington College of Law, where she was a Senior Staffer on the American University Law Review and President of the Moot Court Honor Society. During law school, she worked as a Judicial Intern at the District Court of Maryland where she drafted memoranda on litigation issues surrounding COVID-19, and drafted orders for substantive and procedural motions.
Having graduated, cum laude, with a B.A. in Psychology, from Franklin and Marshall College, Sarah served as Captain of the Varsity Women’s Basketball Team, and President of the Student-Athlete Leadership Council.
For the past five years, Sarah has served as a Victim Advocate at the Network for Victim Recovery of D.C., where, among other things, she assisted sexual assault survivors through forensic exams, provided support through the initial trauma phase, secured emergency housing, and facilitated law enforcement and survivor collaboration for criminal reports.
When she’s not practicing law, Sarah enjoys listening to podcasts, playing basketball or pickleball, and fostering dogs with the Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
